been posted by the "washington post" for tomorrow, and saying that it had become a distraction, that she wants to focus on her work and that clearly was not possible the way this had proceeded. i think that no one asked her to withdraw but they were unable, since she had not been nominated and the president was still obviously ambivalent between her and john kerry at this stage, they did not surround her with the kind of support she would have had if she had been a nominee. i think it's very clear from our reporting and from chuck todd's reporting that some of the top advisers in the white house, they were divided also, but some of the top advisers said to the president you do not need this political battle right now with the republican senate because this would stretch the benghazi investigation forever and it would mean that the confirmation hearing would be very difficult. they probably could have won it. but that it would be a distraction from the main act, which is to move on, create a cabinet, have a national security team and focus on the tax and spending debate, which i
washington commission. this is not something where folks are going to be studying the issue for six months and publishing a report that gets read and pushed aside. this a team that has a very specific task, to pull together real reforms, right now. >> shepard: the president said the second amendment does guarantee an individual's right to bear arms. he believes the vast majority of gun owners in america are responsible. >> i am also betting that the majority the vast majority of law abiding gun owners would be the first to say that we should be able to keep a few law breaking. >> shepard: specifically the president is hinting at military style assault weapons and high ammunition clips. most americans support background checks before all gun purchases involving those private dealers. he addede need to work to make access to mental healthcare as easy as access to guns. and we need a closer look at a culture that glorifies guns and violence as he put it of course we have seen mass shootings over and over again. the president ticked off a long list today. and we have heard outrage and vows for
are presenting that we can either contact or -- ? >> yes, peter bareez -- peter de vries of washington state and tom harkin in the senate. i have just come to our door tom harkin because he is like a voice of rationality in understanding the economics and burnie of the legal rules -- and making sure we have liberals for the economy. and the transaction tax is being taken very seriously in europe and probably will happen there, even though the u.k. is kicking and screaming because they specialize in being the home of trading, whether trading in stocks or derivatives or anything else. they simply do not want that to be taxed. there are people in congress. i think wall street is now the number-one contributor to political campaigns. at least, it is in the running for number-one. i have been to washington many times and i'm involved with several groups that are trying to reform the business sector so that it can work, so that it can survive. it is very difficult because of the sheer amount of money that the finance sector in particular is pouring into lobbying and campaign contributions. it is v

. >> i'm gres gregg jarrett. >> gridlock in washington continues. the white house not backing down one bit. republican leaders say though are nowhere near on negotiations to avoid the fiscal cliff. >> and protest in tahrir square as anger continues to grow against egyptian president mohammed morsi. we'll have a live report. >> new information on what may have caused a freight train carrying dangerous chemicals to derail in new jersey. >> heather: the clock is winding down to a potential economic disaster. there has been a lot of talk apparently nothing to show for it. democrats and republicans blaming each other nor the standoff with your tax bill riding on the out come. unless an agreement is reached by the end of the month, bush-era tax cuts will expire triggering a rise in taxes by an average of 5%. that means a middle-class family will pay $2,000 more in taxes and married couples would be hurt because of marriage penalty. it doesn't include the budget consequences. $55 billion would be cut from the pentagon and another $55 billion slashed from domestic programs. an estimated 2 mill

"the new york times" also has another fascinating story. john boehner gained strong backing of the house gop. they actually say that the speaker's more powerful today than he has been since he became speaker two years ago. >>
joins us from washington. speaker boehner plans to go home to ohio today. >> reporter: that's right. he is on his way if not there already. and, you know, you talked about the word frank that was used by both parties, by the white house and by the speaker's office. just like they did over the weekend they put out identical statements, really one sentence statements. diplomatic terms, frank means not so good. and that's the same word that the speaker used a couple days ago to describe their meeting on sunday which we understand from sources was pretty tense. just the fact that they only met for 50 minutes is indicative of the fact that the meeting didn't produce very much. now i understand from democratic sources earlier in the day yesterday that they were going to try to invite the speaker over to the white house to get things moving before he went home to ohio to perhaps put a few of the spending cuts that the speaker has been demanding on the table to try to, you know, cut a -- break this deadlock. doesn't seem like they got very far. >> we've had dead locks before in washington and t

good. >> yep. >> maine, washington state approved same-sex marriage, it's already legal in d.c. and six other states. >>> let's turn to the weather. face it, it's affecting a huge chunk of the nation right now. >> there's a lot of snow out there. in fact, snow currently covers more than half of the lower 48 states and unfortunately for some people, the storm's not over yet. let's bring in meteorologist bonnie schneider. what's going to happen today? >> alison and christi, looking at a brand new storm system that will give another one-two punch to areas covered with snow. you mentioned the snow cover. we have almost 65% of the country covered with snow at this time. look how far south. into northern louisiana. well, unfortunately -- or fortunately if you're off and looking for more snow -- you're going to get it. look at what's happening. the snow stretches from ohio all the way to the northeast are and to the south heavy thunderstorms through eastern sections of north carolina. as this energy works its way offshore, we'll be watching for the energy to travel from the midwest further off
religion and american politics. he is introduced by john danforth. from washington university, this is an hour and a half. >> finally, it is my honor to introduce senator john danforth, who will introduce mr. will. the senator is a partner with the law firm. he graduated with honors from princeton university, where he majored in religion. he received a bachelor of divinity degree from yale divinity school and a bachelor of laws degree from yale law school. he practiced law for some years and began his political career in 1968 when he was elected attorney general of missouri in his first place for public office. missouri voters elected him to the u.s. senate in 1976. they reelected him in 1982 and 1988, for a total of 18 years of service. the senator initiated major legislation in international trade, telecommunications, health care, research and development, transportation, and civil rights. he was later appointed special counsel by janet reno. he later represented the united states as u.s. ambassador to the united nations and served as a special envoy to sudan. he has been a
to head back to washington and jump-start the fiscal cliff negotiations with congress. talks fell apart before christmas. the deadline now is just days away and there is no deal in sight to avoid the tax hikes and spending cuts set to go into effect january 1st. our juan williams is a fox news political analyst and he joins us today and very quickly, juan, merry christmas to you. >> merry christmas, kelly. kelly: this is daunting task facing congress to avert the so-called fiscal cliff that will set into motion more than $600 billion in drastic and draconian allic tax hikes and spending cuts. that will cause a lot of pain for all americans and does congress have enough time to act on this? >> they do. you know it will be very close and it may in fact go beyond the deadline per se although people are thinking at the moment it is possible to get something done by the end of this week. the key here, kelly, is the senate. we have been so focused on the house, speaker boehner, plan. about, plan b falling apart. now speaker boehner is pointing towards the senate and the white house is pointin
for many american pedestrians. that was the finding of a university of washington study published in the journal "prevention." it tracked 1,100 pedestrians in seattle, washington and found more than a third of people text, talk or listen to music when they cross the street. only one in four people followed the proper safety protocol, looking both ways and obeying the light. vehicle-pedestrian accidents kill 4,000 people every year in the u.s. and injure 60,000 others. the man who co-invented the bar code joseph woodland has died in new jersey. woodland's bar codes are on nearly every product in stores today. he came up with the idea after drawing morse code dots and dashes in the sand on a miami beach, absent-mindedly letting his fingers drag a series of parallel lines instead. the idea was patented in 1952 but not put into wide use until the 1970s. woodland was 91 years old. those are some of the day's major stories. now, back to margaret. >> warner: 18 days and counting until the end of the year when the government reaches the edge of the so-called fiscal cliff. congressional co
's going on. we've conveyed very frankly, candidly to the chinese in both washington d.c. and beijing in my case. >> in beijing, what is the view that you can tell of kim jong-un about what power he has, who he is, what its capabilities are to stay in north korea? >> the chinese believe we need to give north korea a chance in and develop economically. china would like all the parties that are part of the six party talks to get back to the table and to see if we can't encourage better behavior from north korea as opposed to imposing sanctions now and trying to coerce north korea into the fold and abiding by their international obligations. so that's a difference of opinion as strategy. china believes we have to engage with north korea. the united states does every time to try to engage with north korea, they basically turned around and fail to respond to their promises and live up to promises and it gets us nowhere. we don't believe we should reward bad behavior. he knocked what is the most important thing the chinese leaders want from you everyday? what are they looking for? >> they want gr
of president obama sequestration policy. everyone here in washington is involved in this attack on our national defense capabilities from a financial perspective. the united states of america has limited funding. i would strongly urge us to use the $480 million being spent on the congo, instead being used to help to people in united states of america who are in need of help, or help reduce the deficit that was testified to be the greatest national security threat to the united states of america. it is a matter of priorities. i appreciate the very noble -- i emphasize the word noble -- effort to help people who are in harm's also way in various parts of the world. my colleague from florida mentioned somalia. certainly in vietnam we tried to do the noble things. we're in a different financial reality. in the absence of a national security interest in the congo, i am afraid that sequestration will force us to retract even though we may wish to the contrary. i yield back the remainder of my time. >> a couple of questions. sequestration is not only obama's, but also our responsibility. i believe we
of "fox news sunday". maybe the worst-kept secret in washington. everybody expected it was going to be john kerry. what does he bring to this post, chris? >> well he certainly brings experience. he has been a member of the senate a long time. he is chairman as wendell said of the senate foreign relations committee. he seems to have a good working relationship between president obama and his national security team. in fact obama has used him several times as a personal envoy to deal particularly with problems in pakistan and afghanistan. it got to a point where hamid karzai, the president of afghanistan preferred to deal with john kerry, the personal envoy the president, rather than the u.s. ambassador there. his latest role had been that he played mitt romney in preparations for the presidential debates. some people said that the president didn't like the fact that he, kerry, was a little long-winded during those debate preps. obviously after the first one, president did pretty well. kerry obviously did pretty well playing romney. he will get the job which he clearly hungered for
in the washington bureau. is there any movement on either side. >> not much. a few republicans who are willing to talk about higher tax rev news but not higher tax rates. the president made a direct appeal to the public. the toy factory in pin pen. he urged congress to pass a bill and extend the era tax cuts for middle class only. >> congress could prevent a tax hike on the first 250,000, of everybodiy income. that means 98 percent of americans and nen percent of small businesses wouldn't see income taxes go up at all . even the wealthiest americans would get a tax cut on $250,000 of the income. democrats are pushing for a vote and it was approved by the secretary. >> and republican leaders what are their next move. >> they are sticking to their guns on the tax rate . they are reacting strongly to the plan that the president uned this week. house spheeker - on speaker boehner said it was not a serious proposal. it is an advantage to run the clock out and getting closer to the deadline in the end of the year. at some point if there is a break through it has to happen in a short manner. it takes
the live shot from washington d.c. has gone down. the president speaking before a group of ceo's business leaders in washington about the economy, and obviously his campaign over the last four years to try to reduce the deficit. jenna: interesting the president is saying he was speaking off the you have cuff, no teleprompter there. he's speaking about how he's rooting on american business. pointed to a couple of aspects much the economy, improvement in consumer confidence and housing as well. he was going to talk a little bit about the fiscal cliff and that's something we've all been talking about recently, and what it means for us right now and the year ahead. we also have other business news. we'll get back to the president by the way if and when we get that feedback. he will be taking questions from the audience there of business leaders as gregg mentioned. elizabeth mcdonald ever the fox business network is standing by list toning some of what the president had to say about the economy. liz, can you place it in context about where our economy is right now. >> reporter: the president j

, still very much in israel's corner, although washington itself has also in the past condemned the settlement buildings as being detrimental to the peace process as well. >> britain's foreign office find it deplorable. it's not just that one spot we were talking about there. east jerusalem, palestinians have said that there has been an incremental takeover in many ways of east jerusalem. there is a report today that settlers have moved into a building in a palestinian neighborhood. today what are you hearing about that? >> well, that's what we're hearing as well that there was a house in east jerusalem, that palestinian settlers just moved into it. that has been a huge problem in the past. not just the fact that settlers were taking over these houses. some of them, of course, with deed that is they claim to have from the past. it's a very big issue of palestinian houses being taken over by israeli settlers there in the east of jerusalem, but also, of course, house demolitions in east jerusalem, settlement construction in east jerusalem. of course, one of the things that is also

it really sad. i love washington and i just don't like what has happened at this point. it's just very unpleasant and sad. and something that a very very good public servant deserves or nobody deserves frankly. >> one of the big challenges for the next secretary of state will be syria and our own mccormick spoke with secretary panetta and learned he is sending two missile batteries to turkey including 400 members of the u.s. military to help. does that signal a greater u.s. military involvement? >> what it signals is turkey is a member of nato. i have just come from turturkey. it has very serious issues with the number of refugees coming in. as a nato member we are really have to and want to and are committed to defending turkey so i think it is a 98nato issue and shows a sign we do not want the problems in syria to spread outside the borders. >> if in fact they begin to move chemical weapons, what should the united states and turkey and other country do so? >> people are very concerned about the use of the chemical weapons and also lack of control over them. and i
